Thought this might be of interest

Here is a lathe for the neanderthals. I have seen some other pedal powered lathes but never one with bicycle type pedals.

Hi Keith,

Very nice lathe. I would like to try a treadle lathe some time. This is the first one I have seen with pedals.

Thanks for posting it.

Looks like a Barnes #3 (http://www.renaissancewoodworker.com/rww188-barnes-no-3-lathe/)

I'll find one some day! I like to bike. I like to work wood. I'd like a Barnes.
